Micron Technologies, Inc.
Dr. Yougui Liao has extensive experience in research of various nano-materials and functional structures and material characterization. He has especially worked on characterizations of various IC devices and materials using electron microscopes and related techniques to understand the problems in “native” materials and devices at various companies and universities for more than 20 years. He is currently a principal engineer in R&D Micron Technology, Inc. Prior to his current work, he was a research associate working on nanotechnologies, including the study of nanotribology and nano-material application in solid oxide fuel cells at Northwestern University, USA. He also had experience working in CNR-IMM (Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems) and R&D STMicroelectronics, Catania, Italy. He earned his Ph.D. degree in physical engineering from Polytechnique Montreal in 2005. He published many peer-reviewed as well as conference papers. Last but not least, he is the author of the well-known online book entitled Practical Electron Microscopy and Database.
